Nine of Swords
This tarot card reveals our deepest thoughts.In a reading, it brings to light our suppressed thoughts, which are embedded so deep inside us that they only surface when we are less conscious. It is possible that we are genuinely unaware, or it could be that we turn an unseeing eye to the signs. If we remain oblivious to our inner feelings, we risk losing out on tapping our latent potential. It is in our best interests to face any unhealthy thoughts, and expel them from our mind, replacing them with happy and positive ones.
The biggest chunk of the Tarot deck, 56 of the 78 cards, comprise the Minor Arcana. 40 cards out of these fall exclusively under the Minor Arcana, while the other 16 also form a part of the Royal Arcana or Court Cards. If the Major Arcana can be said to convey the big picture, the Minor Arcana signifies the specifics in the life of a person. It is divided into four parts: The Suit of Swords signifies the realm of the mind and intellect, our decisions and insights. The Suit of Cups has to do with the things of the heart, things we love and care about. The Suit of Wands represents our power and life energy as applied to the situations and events we face in life. And lastly, the Suit of Pentacles represent our labours and the rewards we gain from them.
